In no particular order (well, except the first one)

Roger Waters The Wall 2010 (Atlanta)
The Ramones 1991 or 1992 (Atlanta): Social Distortion was the opening act
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings 2007 (Orange County, CA)
Rolling Stones Roseland Ballroom 2002
James Brown 2003 I think: Tunica, MS
Man or Astroman (such a fun band)

Finally, not a well-known band, but one of the best live music experiences:

The Hollywood All-Stars: Wild Bill's, Memphis, TN

A juke joint in Memphis (far away from the tourist traps of Beale St) with an outstanding band. So much fun. Beer comes in quarts, and you can bring your own liquor.

A guitarist sat in that looked like Fred Sanford.

If you are ever in Memphis, get thee to Wild Bill's (although I'm not sure what the quality is like now).
